From what I've read, it is perfectly normal for them to change
completely with their shedding cycle. My Copernicus just went
he went from silver to sterling silver in one week (almost all of
guard hairs fell out), and now he has gone back to silver. I
alarmed unless the hair falls out and doesn't grow back.
Two of mine change shades with the seasons. Poki gets much lighter
and Smoky gets a much lighter tan undercoat. In the winter Poki has
a lot of
black guard hairs and Smoky has a deep carmel undercoat. Loki has
stayed the same, and Vanilla's an albino. His coat has turned to the
yellowish white. (he just turned one.)
